    Evanescence | Sailboat — 11.7 m

    This anchorage is marked on Navionics and other nautical charts. There are yellow buoys marking the required 500m swimming area from the beach and we anchored just outside of these in 5m of good holding sand. On our visit in May 2018, we were the only boat there. This stretch of coast appears to be a bit of a ‘playground’ for people with jet skis, speedboats and large motor cruisers; some of which are inconsiderate with their speeds and create large wakes. We had 20 knots of easterly wind and the swell became very uncomfortable. We didn’t go ashore, so I cannot comment on how easy it would be or where to leave the dinghy. Overall, a very pleasant anchorage but limited in protection from swell.

    sapetoq | Sailboat — 11.45 m

    Anchorage valid by wind or small sea wind. Not protected from the sea swell, a little runner but on the nature of sand bottoms

    Mouillage valable par vent de terre ou par petit vent de mer.Peu protégé de la houle du large,un peu rouleur mais sur par la nature des fonds de sable

    Harmony TWO | Sailboat — 11.98 m

    Anchorage on sandy bottom of 4 meters near the beach and behind the port, a little roll but sure anchorage.

    Mouillage sur fond de sable de 4 mètres près de la plage et derrière le port, un peu rouleur mais sûr comme ancrage.
